This Cranberry Pie is really more of a cake with a wonderful flavor that combines the tartness of cranberries with the smooth, buttery taste of cake.

With a handful of ingredients, any beginner cook could make it. But it’s festive color makes it pretty enough for a special dinner.

Cranberries are only in season in the early fall, so make this dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmastime!
